I have never seen this problem with more clarity then I did just this evening. I had discussed earlier an idea to do a nationwide walkout on the day
the Republican Party picks there candidates, and again on Prrimary election day, and maybe even on election day. I personally say if a good majority
of the people in the US refuse to vote for Primaries someone is going to take note, and if a bunch of people walk out of work the media will notice. I
am talking at least 50% of the Nation would be nice.
Anyway I was telling my mom about this idea of mine and she shocked me to say the least. She says to me, "Josh I don't think you will ever be able to
rally enough people to do anything significant. I gave up a long time ago at trying to change things when I realized there was nothing that could ever
be done. The only thing that you can do is your live your life to the best that you can and worry about what you answer to when your dead." I said
what god? She said, "Yes." I said, so if Barack O'Bama wanted to start a war that could spark off the end of the world with your 11 month old
Granddaughter you can honestly tell me that you would just throw your hands up in the air and say oh well there is nothing we can do about it. She
says, "Well there isn't we can't change what they do." I said that's because no one will ever actually stand up do you really think if the whole
country said no to a war that they would do it anyway? I said if they did they would risk a revolution. She ends this all by saying, "Well I am off to
confession." and left.
It was then that I realized if my mom the old hippy who went to Woodstock is now content to sit around and let the world end that this is why we will
never be able to change the way this country is run. So my answer to this is that I am going to take it upon myself to rally as many people as I can
to stand up, speak up, and fight for a real change. I do not think we need violence to achieve this, and if that is what you are interested in then
sorry but this cause is not for you. IF you want to help me rally the above functions to try and initiate an end to the two party system that has
ruled this country since 1856 then please send me a U2U and we can start brainstorming on the ways to approach this. So far a Facebook event is the
best I have come up with.
Please give me input here as I am not a natural leader, but honestly I am sick and tired of the way the world is run and more particularly the twin
powers of the US and UK are run. I say it's time we stand up and take back what is rightfully ours to change. I know I kind of just threw the UK in
there but I have a lot of friends from England that are unhappy with the way there government is run as well. So maybe we can stage a two part protest
in both countries. I don't know as I said I am brainstorming here. The biggest thing that I am trying to do is that I do not want to be one of those
people that bitch and moan about it and never do anything to change it. I want to be the one that at least tries, and if it fails at least I tried.
